This letter is to introduce myself and acknowledge my interest in tutoring. I am a first year graduate student at Seton Hall University working towards my Ph.D. at Counseling Psychology. I have got my Bachelors of Science in Pre-medicine and Psychology and my Masters in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. I aspire to be a professor once I get my doctorate because teaching has always been a passion along with continuing clinical work and research.
I graduated with a Master's in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Syracuse University in Dec, 2016. During my time there, I have worked with faculty members in teaching masters level course (Psychopathology), organizing conferences, presenting on topic of interest and mentoring incoming masters students. Through these experiences I have gained leadership, organization and teaching skills that will highly coincide with the job requirements. I am well aware of the dedication, effort, creativity and commitment required for becoming a tutor.
My teaching and mentor style is to empower students. I believe the act of teaching is creative and fluid where the teacher has to mold their teaching style according to the student's requirements and learning style. I am a firm believer that every person have their own unique learning style and it can be highly beneficial for the student if they feel supported and safe to take risks and build confidence in the subject matter they are struggling in.
I am proficient in grade and high school level reading, writing, math, algebra, statistics. Geometry and Biology. As these topics can be challenging and concepts hard to grasp, I like to use creative, fun ways to relate them to real life problems to make better meaning of it.
Outside of school and research, I like to hike with my puppy, read and paint.
I appreciate your time to review my credentials and experience. Thank you for your consideration.
